Dave and the boys are at a ski lodge; Dave is participating in a ski meet while the brothers have to break up a barrel and stay out of trouble. Alvin sees skis from the planks of the barrel so he and Simon use them to ride down the mountain as Theodore tends to the cabin fire. The duo flies down the slope, right past Dave who begins to follow them. The brothers barely miss a stump, but Dave isn't so lucky. He flies through the air, over the boys, until he lands upside down with skis providing a bridge over a ravine for the runaway pair of chipmunks to cross. They enter a cave, picking up a bear, before they loose it and Simon crashes into a tree. Alvin continues speeding down the mountain, as Dave nears the finish line, landing just in front of his father-figure. The boys return to the cabin with a trophy to find Dave sitting by the fire fueled by skis.

Miraculously, the car lands without a scratch and starts up. Dave follows a dirt road until he encounters a construction area about to have an explosion. The car stalled out again and they quickly hid. After the blast, a large boulder lands in the back seat. Rain starts falling as they drive away.

Dave and the boys get ready to see an ice show, but Alvin fakes laryngitis for he's lost his ticket. Really wanting to see the show, the red-clad chipmunk pretends he has an ice delivery in order to fool a guard. The guard suspects Alvin's deception though Alvin alludes him by jumping into a barrel. Unfortunately for him the barrel is needed for the next stunt, and as Alvin attempts to roll away, he ruins the stunt and is discovered by Dave and his brothers, who believe he's part of the show. Alvin runs from an angry Freddy Twinkletoes and the guard before being swept into the next event, much to the audience's approval. After crashing into a wall, Alvin confesses to the guard and promise to avoid ice shows. The next day, a studio worker suggest ice for Alvin's eye, causing Alvin to sit on a ceiling swing as he refuses to record.

In order to save the bird, Fido frightened the cat up the tree and parted the branches for the small bird. The next morning the birds returned, excited that Fido saved their friend's life.
